1:04 pm
parents and she describes him as a very family loving and caring young man and when i asked her whether he expressed any x. her interest in this she told me that his interest was never overwhelming. the middle and wasn't a religious fanatic he was curious about religion he started to be really interested in islam about three years ago but he was never a radical we would talk about his commitment to religion but it wasn't extreme it was really hard for her to speak she told me that. the younger brother was planning to come here to dagestan this may and now their father plans a trip to the united states to bury his son to medal and so as for many here if she couldn't the woman couldn't really believe that they were involved in the tragedy. it's impossible to believe that they could have carried it out just impossible it's
1:05 pm
terrible. believe it their children who respected their parents a lot time alone was very attentive to older people to spam for him have been was of use mother's feet both parents mobile phones are switched off or rarely own line and it's really impossible to reach them but i have since managed to speak to the mother of the two brothers and kept repeating their first answer in this and she also mentioned that her eldest son tamerlan was under constant surveillance for years when both parents before mentioned that come along told them that the i'll be i can talk to him right after the boston bombings and ask him for questioning however the i'll be or the i'll be a later denied that information now as for the father i spoke with him also in a telephone conversation just yesterday and he told me that he doesn't want to talk to any media right now so really dozens of journalists from all over the world is that how descended on this region hope that the man's family will speak and

eventually shed some light to how their boys and up the main suspects in the boston terrorist attack will be watching that report until it has been a development as well on this story the past few minutes we expect in this line all day but now it's coming we're hearing that charges have been filed against the surviving suspect of the boston bombings. can. you speak at the moment is having difficulty in a way because the injuries to his throat as a so the latest one we've got my eye was the charges have been filed against the younger brother the nineteen year old details of those charges are not yet clear. to revelations of the the suspects chechen origins the u.s. wasted no time in shifting the focus to groups in russia's north caucasus region but i'm going to have previously been betrayed in the west as freedom fighters are now seen as merciless terrorists. starr said believes american attitudes to church could explain the f.b.i.'s failure to take action before after russia wounded two
1:07 pm
years ago about the older brother. there's a number of issues here one is that either it's gross incompetence by the f.b.i. english case some heads have to roll and why did this take place how did these guys get in under the radar. but also that they were pointed out by the russian authorities to the u.s. so it's not that they were known it's not like they didn't register so the people who know so it could be gross incompetence for not taking the threat seriously the f.b.i. could be saying look at these guys a chechen they could be a threat to the russian but he did not a threat to us so there's a number of issues here there's also the issue of look maybe the f.b.i. just thought you know what these guys are experienced but they really don't pose much of a threat we don't see them doing anything so there's a number of issues here i think in the coming weeks and months we're going to find out the answers. the u.s. may be changing its move towards chechen militants amid suspicions they may be connected to the boston bombings put things were different just a few years ago when it was quite willing to see some of them on its soil back in
1:08 pm
two thousand and four american authorities granted political asylum to key chechen extremists made off spider warning from russia then that he had links to the region's terrorists and after the dramatic manhunt for the brothers the still plenty of uncertainty surrounding the case no doubt see dot com our web site we've got opinion piece lined up for you pointing out several glaring inconsistency in the official account of the standoff with the suspects who want to check it out for yourself if you get a minute we invite you to go to r.t. dot com. exercise serbia has moved a step closer to joining the european union after the commission recommended starting talks on membership that decision comes in the wake of belgrade approving a deal with its breakaway territory course of the agreement spain fearing the serbs some of whom branded it treason thousands turned out in belgrade a protest against the deal it grants kristina's ethnic albanian leadership control over kosovo while said we are minorities will be granted autonomy is within the territory of the of foreign affairs editor serbian public t.v.
1:09 pm
told us the issue of kosovo has become a bargaining chip exception talks. even though serbia wanted that also but not to become bargaining chip that was not what brussels had in mind and needs in particular some major members of the european union like germany they clearly. either you make a deal with cost of all or you will never. continue your road towards the european union. that the. union. members will fight. for how they will deal with it remains to be seen but indeed european union is on solving that issue because they have been very much in control. they fought for secure. like members of nato to secure independence of course where they're not going to give up now. while some countries buy another door to get into the e.u.

others are funny with memberships rules a driver the human to desperate measures as we find out greece is up for grabs it seems with the largest fire sale in history from pristine coastlines to ancient palaces all just to keep its economy afloat he says about that coming up very shortly tonight. but next to moscow of course put the head of a british investment firm on an international wanted list and they should arrest warrant to william browder from the hermitage capital investment fund is also the former boss of the late russian moister good magnitsky died in prison while being held on tax evasion charges let's get more from artie's correspondent corpuscle of it either tell us a little bit more about these charges what's actually being looted is dorian well we do know about william browder from the controversial hermitage capital fund story he is former head he is suspected of not being around seventeen million dollars worth of taxes it is the same case which involved. work for the fund but
1:11 pm
he died in prison before a court could make a decision on this case but he was also suspected of taking part in these alleged illegal activities overseen by mr browder but actually now he's been put on the international wanted list in connection to a whole other story he's suspected of illegally purchasing through various criminal schemes around one one hundred million dollars worth of shares of russia's energy giant gazprom and under russian law a foreign companies are prohibited from buying such shares and he's also suspected of trying to infiltrate the company changing things inside including changing its charter and what are the chances that he will actually get to a court here in russia or indeed any time soon be convicted well one of the reasons behind him being put on the internet. the wanted list is that the previous court hearings were held without without him actually there present and the other reason is that the prosecution believes that he could apply pressure on some of the
1:12 pm
witnesses so well now that he has been put on the list it's logical to expect that interpol will get involved it's also logical to expect for moscow to ask for his extradition but here there is a problem of the complicated relationship between russia and the u.k. in that sense for instance a former church militant leader of london denied his extradition to russia several times to the same goes for the recently deceased bodies because last you saw it's very unlikely that london will cooperate with moscow in that sense when it comes to william browder but the fact that the man is already on the international wanted list has to mean something of course when you go person all things that. had to stay with us much more news to come it's no twenty one forty no on the but moscow time more international news is what after this quick break.
